    Princess Leia’s Pregnant Bond Girl Bridesmaid

    ¬†Things I love about this dress: 1. The color. Oh, the color! It is that perfect bright coral that I just want to soak in for hours and never take off. 2. The length. I can’t resist floor-length gowns. Especially not when they’re this color. 3. The innate 1970’s of it all. It is, through and through, a completely 70’s gown. The length, the high neckline, the sleeves; it’s a product of the late 60’s ladylike-ness coming through to an early 70’s hippie. 4. Obviously, that it really IS a late 60’s/early 70’s evening gown. I can’t resist a vintage piece, no matter how whacky it may be. (To wit:…

I still really, really, really love the blonde hair. Given, it’s only been five days since I got it dyed, but I just love it more every day! A few tips, for anyone thinking of going blonde:…

    30×30: Day 7

    I’m having a really hard time remembering which pictures were taken on which days, since I don’t post my photos right away, and this week they’re all out of order, ¬†and sometimes I can’t download them for a few days from Mr. Owl’s card. So I’m fairly certain this is day seven, but I could be wrong. Although, going through my Facebook 30×30 album (which has outfits that didn’t make it to the blog), day seven is the only logical day for this outfit. I just remember this as the day I had a lot of trouble with my skirt. Trouble in the form of… you know… wind. I really…
